Epiroc’s Underground and Rock Excavation division develops, manufactures and markets a wide range of tunneling and mining equipment for various underground applications worldwide. We provide added customer value by focusing on innovative product design and aftermarket support systems.
Rock drilling equipment
Underground drill rigs are used to drill blast holes in hard rock to excavate ore in mines or to excavate rock in infrastructure projects like railway tunnels and hydroelectric power. Holes are also drilled for rock reinforcement with rock bolts.
With a high level of automation, the rigs make underground projects more efficient and easier to schedule. Innovative rock drilling equipment that enhances value for customers include the Boomer S2 automated mining and tunneling rig, and the diesel-free Boomer M2 Battery drill rig.
Loading and haulage equipment
Underground vehicles are used to load and transport ore and/or rock. One example of a successful product that is increasing customers’ productivity is the underground Minetruck MT65; this powerful machine has 65-ton capacity and comes ready for automation.
Rock reinforcement equipment
Underground rock reinforcement equipment is used in both mining and construction applications to secure underground sites. The equipment is used for bolting and concrete spraying. Products include the Meyco ME5 mobile concrete sprayer.
We also provide high-pressure fans designed especially for delivering air through ducts in mining and tunneling.
